Hmmm let me take a shot at this.
INTRO: usually a short melody or lick at the beginning of a song just before the first verse that "introduces" the song. Almost always a memorable set of notes.
From Wikipedia:
VERSE: In popular music a verse roughly corresponds with a poetic stanza. When two or more sections of the song have basically identical music and different lyrics these sections are probably the verses of the song. It's the part of the song where the story is told.
BRIDGE: Lyrically, the bridge is typically used to pause and reflect on the earlier portions of the song or to prepare the listener for the climax.[citation needed]
(repeat intro x20 basically this means you repeat the opening lick two times
Verse 2: a new verse usually containg different lyrics from verse 1

How'd I do? ok?

The term may also be used to refer to the section between the verse and the chorus, although this is more commonly referred to as the pre-chorus or link.[

Oh and sooner or later you are bound to ask about CHORUS so here is the Wikipedia definition of chorus:

Chorus is used to mean the refrain of a song, which often sharply contrasts the verse melodically, rhythmically, and harmonically, and assumes a higher level of dynamics and activity, often with added instrumentation. Chorus form, or strophic form, is a sectional and/or additive way of structuring a piece of music based on the repetition of one formal section or block.

When two or more sections of the song have basically identical music and lyrics these sections are probably instances of the chorus. Sometimes this can be repeated at the end and at the beginning.

The Chorus usually leads to either another verse, the bridge, or it closes the song.
